We’ve selected a few of the latest new geographic, host and species records for plant pests and diseases from CAB Abstracts. Records this fortnight include a new record of insect pests on seedlings of Eucalyptus, the occurrence of Alternaria species on cabbage in Iran, and the dispersal, yield losses and varietal resistance of Sugarcane streak mosaic virus in Indonesia.
